    ABSOLUTELY NO BUYING/SELLING/TRADING ALLOWED. OR SPORTS TALK IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE...YOU WILL BE BANNED.

    Thread will be updated as new information becomes available.

    Back to a low top.


    From Sneaker News:

    With the Nike KD V life-cycle coming to end in just a few weeks, Nike Basketball is ready to unveil the Nike KD VI sooner than expected; instead of the late year introduction, the Nike KD VI will be unveiled in the coming Summer/Fall months to give each Nike signature its own spotlight rather than clustering them so closely at the end of the year. The first expected release is this bright yellow/blue version, which could be deemed an “OKC Home” colorway. Aside from the color package, there’s some interesting design points to shed light on, starting with the revised cushioning system. Replacing the 180-degree Max Air on the heel is the 180-degree Zoom Air unit embedded in a Phylon midsole. The upper utilizes that “second skin” approach with the low-pro and seamless shell with embedded Flywire providing the necessary strength.

    The tongue and lacing structure is again a structural achievement, with the split-tongue construction and shroud leaning on the lateral side providing stress relief on the foot while overlapping the medial upper that provides a bootie-like feel. The new KD logo on the tongue spells out “35″ in negative space, while the classic KD logo is prominently placed on the heel. Overall, the low-cut, low-profile silhouette gives the sneaker almost a Kobe-like appeal, with the Hyperdunk-inspired forefoot Swoosh giving the sneaker much of an International Football approach.

    I'm on board as well. I'm glad they went lower.

    Lacing system looks interesting as well.

    haha to be fair s dubl this thread wasn't created yet when I made the other haha. 

    On to the shoes though I've like the low top build with the Kobe series and these have potential just not feeling this colorway.

    To be honest, I really really hope this is a wrong information, and the pics we've seen are some king of KDtrey line ...

    The KD6 just can't look that way.

    It can't be like a football shoe. I'm so disappointed today ....

    So is this the official thread? There is like 4. Like them a lot. Just wish they were more original. Some Asian site has these as the hyperdunk 2012 low :lol: just waiting on nike to confirm because to me they look like a takedown model. Wouldn't be surprised if they are kd's version of the lebron ambassadors.

    I'm good on plastic shoes from now on. They look ok and will get better but a pass for me. No more hyperfuse for me

    :rofl:

    I saw a post asking for an official, I was putting mine together. Came back and there were a few others.

    I did the IV and the V, I'll continue with VI I guess.

    If this isn't the VI, I'll adjust the thread accordingly.

    i think the lacing system is what's drawing me to em.


    nothing personal dude. Sho3tym did a pretty good job of keeping the V thread updated. I know he follows the Kd line, so he'll be around...Many times people make the "official" thread, stick around for a few weeks never to be seen again. Trying to avoid a lot of lost info because someone else would have to start a new thread to keep it updated, that's all.

    I thought most people problem with the v was that they look like a hyperdunk? Can anybody tell how the tongue is I can't take anymore pain in the forefront from the new model.

    Nothing against the other dudes, but I prefer sho3tym making the official thread.  He has a proven track record.

    The only thing I'm skeptical of is the midsole. It looks kind of... "chunky". Also curious as to the price point.

    I have to see more pictures, but I like the idea behind it.
